41. Clarification of lookup of names after declarator-id

Section: 6.5.3  [basic.lookup.unqual]     Status: TC1     Submitter: Mike Miller     Date: 1 Sep 1998

Footnotes 26 and 29 both use the phrase "following the function declarator" incorrectly: the function declarator includes the parameter list, but the footnotes make clear that they intend what's said to apply to names inside the parameter list. Presumably the phrase should be "following the function declarator-id."

Proposed Resolution (04/99): Change the text in 6.5.3 [basic.lookup.unqual] paragraph 6 from:

A name used in the definition of a function [footnote: This refers to unqualified names following the function declarator; such a name may be used as a type or as a default argument name in the parameter-declaration-clause, or may be used in the function body. end footnote] that is ...
to:
A name used in the definition of a function following the function's declarator-id [footnote: This refers to unqualified names that occur, for instance, in a type or default argument expression in the parameter-declaration-clause or used in the function body. end footnote] that is ...
Change the text in 6.5.3 [basic.lookup.unqual] paragraph 8 from:
A name used in the definition of a function that is a member function (11.4.2 [class.mfct] ) [footnote: That is, an unqualified name following the function declarator; such a name may be used as a type or as a default argument name in the parameter-declaration-clause, or may be used in the function body, or, if the function is a constructor, may be used in the expression of a mem-initializer. end footnote] of class X shall be ...
